Some things happen to other people. But imagine my surprise when I learned the Australian woman and her 4 year old daughter who are trapped in Cairo are my friends' family.  The rather long and circuitous story of how  an Australian national, Amaal Finn and her daughter find themselves unable to leave Cairo is a  mother's nightmare....more
